All warfare is deception. Even in high school.
It’s been nineteen days since Isis Blake forgot about him. The boy she can't quite remember. She's stuck in the hospital with a turban-size bandage on her head, more Jell-o than a human being should ever face, and a tiny bit of localized amnesia. Her only goal? To get out of this place before she becomes a complete nutjob herself.
But as Isis’s memories start to return, she realizes there’s something important there at the edges of her mind. Something that may mean the difference between life and death. Something about Sophia, Jack’s girlfriend.
Jack Hunter—the “Ice Prince”—remembers everything. Remembers Isis's purple hair and her smart-ass mouth. Remembers that for a little while, Isis made him feel human. She made him feel. She burned a hole in the ice…and it's time to freeze back up. Boys like him don't deserve girls like her. Because Jack is dangerous. And that danger might be the only thing protecting her from something far more threatening.
Previously published as Savage Delight, this fully revised and updated edition is full of hilarity, drama, and heartbreak.
PLEASE NOTE: This review will contain spoilers for book 1. This series was previously published under the names Lovely Vicious (Now, Love Me Never) and Savage Delight (now Forget Me Always) Forget Me Always is fully revised and updated edition of the previous book. It got a new cover, and because I loved books 1 and 2 of the Lovely Vicious Series so much, I decided to re-read both Love Me Never and Forget Me Always.
If you are new to the series, please check out my review of Love Me Never first.
I love this series. I loved this series when book 2 was called, Savage Delight, and I loved this series in the reworked versions. Savage Delight is now called Forget me Always, and it picks up right after Love Me Never left off. You need to read the first book or you will be confused as heck in this book. Isis is still in the hospital dealing with her memory loss after the events at the end of book 1. It instantly transported me back to how devastated I felt at the end of the first book because of everything that had happened between Isis and Jack.
All of the your favorite characters are back in this second installment, plus we get to see a lot more of Sophia. She becomes a main character with secrets of her own. Secrets are the name of the game in the Lovely Vicious series. Everyone has them, I thought we found out most of them in the first book. So not the case! There were lots more coming to the surface in Forget Me Always. I didn’t see some of them coming at all.
I so badly just wanted Isis and Jack to start off where they finally left off near the end of the first book, but they had a long way to go to get back to that. Plus there was the added complication of Sophia. I got the impression through the first book that she only liked Jack as a friend, but I started to see a whole new Sophia in this story. One that I wasn’t sure how much I liked. I understand why she was how she was, but my perception of her changed.
The Lovely Vicious series is dark and wounded. These characters are so deeply flawed but they are able to find comfort in each other after all of these awful things happened. I loved that they each faced some of their fears in this book. And I loved how they stuck together. The ending was tragic and intense once again and it left us hanging, just like last time. I am so sad that there is only one book left in the trilogy, but I am so anxious to see how everything will wrap up. This is a really unique series. There is not anything quite like it out there that I have encountered. I love it.
